We loved the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort! We stayed in a beachside bungalow and it was so charming! The bungalow was so private and right on the beach with a gorgeous view of the ocean. It was so quiet and romantic! We loved the Costa Rican decor, and every day we came back to the bungalow there was a different towel animal decorated in tropical flowers. The staff at the Ylang Ylang were so friendly and helpful as well. We also took advantage of the yoga classes held at the resort. They take place in a beautiful teak room overlooking the ocean! The most beautiful yoga room I have ever seen. The instructors were fantastic as well! We can't wait to come back!

Wow, one of the most beautiful places we have ever been. The jungle / beach setting is spectacular and the view from the restaurant and yoga room is fabulous. All the staff are very nice and the food of in the restaurant is delicious. The bungalow was not big (we stayed in Colibri) for us 4 with a baby cot and the all suitcases, but it compensated in charm and location and had all we needed. The only suggestion I could give to the resort is to offer daily transport to Montezuma. It is not far, but with small kids we would have appreciated that. But all in all we had a great time and we can only warmly recommend a stay at this very special place. Heavenly!

Dear Mirjam,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a kind review for us! Our Colibri Bungalow is a very charming unit for families to enjoy. Thank you for your suggestion about the shuttle into Montezuma. We choose to not offer regular shuttle service throughout the day because part of the drive is over the beach and we try to minimize our environmental impact on the beach whenever possible, only driving over when necessary. However, we appreciate the feedback. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to welcome you back again someday!

Sincerely,
Emma and Moraya Iacono

What a great place! Service, surroundings, staff...I could go on and on... From the moment you get picked up at El Sano Bonano to be taken to Ylang Ylang Resort you are treated extremely well. The resort is very secluded, the beach is spectacular, the accommodations are terrific and the staff is wonderful. There are plenty of activities to keep you busy, yet the seclusion keeps you relaxed. It was great from start to finish.

We are planning our next visit already. As soon as we settle upon the dates, we ill be making our reservations!

Thanks to everyone at Ylang Ylang Resort. It is truly a special place!
Nick and Maria

Room Tip: We stayed in the Tree Top Canopy - it was awesome! However, the other types of accommodations look to be just as terrific. We cannot wait to get back there.

It was our first time in Costa Rica. we had the most wonderful time at Ylang Ylang and Montezuma. The people and the beauty of the surrounding beaches and jungles were breath taking. The staff and people of this area were truly special. Even spent a day just relaxing in the hammocks..Taking "the road less traveled" was worth it and then some! Can not wait to go back.

Room Tip: We stayed in a beach bungalow. Woke up every morning to the sound and view of the ocean. Did not have hot water every day, but it was humid and that was ok.
